Manpower planning is a key aspect of the human resource management function in organizations. Specifically, manpower planning examines the gap between staff availabilities (internal and external to the organization) and staffing requirements (to perform tasks in the organization) over time, and prescribes courses of action to narrow such a gap. Different perspectives in manpower planning have each been studied widely in the past. However, few insights are available on the interactions among these perspectives and the impact of these interactions on the resultant manpower plans. Describes these interactions in the form of decision and feedback loops. From this description, derives an integrated decision support system (DSS) framework for manpower planning. Also presents a methodology for analysis of the manpower planning business process and feasibility assessment of DSS deployment. The system framework and analysis methodology constitute a basis for applications deployment and consultancy undertaken by the author’s institute.
